  • New Drop Shadow Plug-In available

    In the very early times of Artweaver (0.x versions) there was a little filter included which added a nice drop shadow effect to the current selected layer. Unfortunately this filter was somehow lost since version 1.0 of Artweaver and for long time there were several requests from Artweaver users about this filter.
